Carluccio's announce three UAE openings this year
Carluccio’s has announced plans to expand its presence in the UAE, with three new outlets penned for 2013.
The brand, part of the Landmark Group, launched its first licensed restaurant at Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 3 in January. Duncan Muir, senior business manager for Carluccio’s said, “The DXB location is only the second airport location for Carluccio’s, after Heathrow Airport, so we’re looking forward to seeing how travellers like the Carluccio’s experience.”
A second outlet opened in March this year at the Deira City Centre in Dubai. “Deira City Centre is an area we’ve been looking at for a while, and when this location became available there was no question we’d go for it,” Muir added.
The two new launches bring the total number of Carluccio’s outlets in the UAE to five, with other existing outlets situated in Mirdif City Centre, the Dubai Mall and the Dubai Marina Mall.
Carluccio’s first outlet in Abu Dhabi is due to open later this year and will be located in the Eastern Mangroves development. “The expansion of Carluccio’s follows the success of our first three outlets and the widespread appeal that the brand has,” says Muir. “So far we’re very happy with both new outlets and looking forward to opening Carluccio’s Abu Dhabi,” he added.
